2005 Louis Roederer Cristal

Cristal Brut
Cristal Brut 
RRP 340

The 2005 edition of this prestigious champagne is superb. Subtly complex and refined, with lovely brioche, patisserie and stone fruit characters, it's perfectly balanced with gorgeous flow in the mouth, growing across the palate to a lingering, dry finish. (Cork; 12 per cent alcohol.)
